So its a new year with new beginnings. Cougarfest is 6 months away today! oy! I am sure everyones has the mod itch or at least an itch to drive the couga at a decent speed. (I know I do!) Theres a few mods I want to do DK but still unsure how funds will pan out. Heh, maybe I will use part of my tax return for something, if I get anything back! I am still looking into getting dual exhust done, carbon fiber hood, a new wing, air intake, paint the calipers and maybe some new interior designs (this is completely hush hush ;) ) Gawd, the boards have kind of been lacking lately and the weathers sh!tty, so What kind of mods are you folks looking into doing your cars?

I have a good amount of new mods for the Coug
I'm way excited about this year.
Things have picked up, I finally got back to work about 4 months ago
,Brooke and I are getting a house within the next two months (knock on wood)
I have tons of freelance that just came in out of no where. And I sold some old parts
off the car so I bought some things. I currently have, Titan CAI, Tru-Bendz Test pipe,
MAF plate, CC short throw shifter, Street link and my biggest mod the
Venom VCN-1000 Nitrous kit I ordered that last Friday should have it soon.

The last two things I'm shooting for is an Apexi S-AFCII to tune with and
Velox VX-8 rims in 18's But if anyone has any suggestions for 18 in rims on my car
let me know I'm open to new ideas.

Oh and I still have to buy 4 new tires for my truck (230.00 ea.) cause I blew them off the rims
off-roading and I finally got the head, cylinder, and piston back (my quad) from Trinity Racing Now I just
have to find time to put it back together.
Sare your car would look sick with a carbon fiber hood I like the black with CF

The boards have been lacking lately. Mods for me, if any, will probably stay cosmetic. It seems anytime you add something performance, it breaks.

I'm seriously considering these Kazeras. And a body kit definitely needs to be in the works.

It only SEEMS that way!
Hell alot of you have close to a stock engine and you're breaking stuff left and right
I don't think it matters whether you mod the engine or not the Cougar likes to break down.
Diane those rims are cool get 18's though
Wouldnt it! Now is customcougars.com the only place that sells them?
Hell yeah it would I like the black and cf it's just cool
Anyway yeah I think James is the only one that carries OEM CF replacement hoods.

Carbon Fiber Predator :bowdown: :bowdown:

I know not everyone has performance mod problems, but why bring it on? Got an intake and a hood and ended up with a busted windshield and a busted EGR tube.

18's are too much for me. I was thinking 16's, maybe 17's. Don't want to go thru the hassles of springs and all.

  • Roush wing (requires painting)
  • Roush 2nd gen rims (requires tires and lugs)
  • Freedom Design front strut bar (requires warm weather)
  • Fasttrack Performance rear strut bar (requires warm weather)
  • OBD-II monitoring software and cable for the Palm
  • Hopefully Springs to go with the wheels (requires $$$ and a mod meet)
  • Hopefully Upgraded speakers and a small subwoofer
  • Hopefully The "secret never seen before at CF" interior mod

As in Bexcat's case, I'll be modding the house this Spring... I was looking at new siding last night, could almost buy my Cougar again, brand new, for what the good stuff costs in siding and labor. Sheesh. Plus I need to paint inside.

Mark needs painting in his house? I know an amazing painter who might do it for you.

Well, I think the EGR tube may have been cracked before intake installation. The windshield got cracked while trying to pry off the wiper arm to get to the hood arm thingy. Everything's fixed now.

-new audio install
-springs
-intake (CTA)
-new battery (optima yellow top)
-OMP FSTB
-exhaust (dont know which one yet)
-razzi body kit (next year most likely)
-carbon fiber hood (stock look. i dont really like the preditor, except on a few cars, and the caminari would be too excentric for the subtle razzi kit i want) (next year most likely)
-new shifter
-cut down shaft of current shifter
-window tint
-brushed aluminum dash kit

i think when the weather warms up we need a mod meet badly. to install x-mas (x-mas/b-day gifts (6 days away!!!!) for me!). atleast sometime before CF.

Kick ass!

Anyways, i've got a lot planned, but some of it i have no idea whether or not i'll get done before CF. Here's my list:

Repainting car (still deciding on whether to keep current color or go for something else, was thinking about painting it pearl white....comments anyone?)
Install cc.com X-1 fenders, kam sides, no limit grille
Repaint fstb mounts in body color
paint and install svt lim & uim, throttle body and cable (picking up lim from osustallion saturday) probably going to paint with body color
build up area around aluminum dash bezel/mounting plate flush with body filler
remove aluminum dash bezel/mounting plate and polish
paint dash
custom fiberglass sub enclosers and trunk setup
finish installing rest of gmk cai
possibly move battery to trunk
maybe white LED underbodies and other lighting goodies
white LEDs in switches
possibly get better audio equipment
installing guage pod and guages
making guage plate to go in ash tray spot with a guage
find a place to install navigation equipment (in steering wheel? excelcier style?)
install demon eyes whenever matt fixes the little problem with the 99-00 style headlights
exhaust (not sure what to get, cat's going bad though, so need to replace soon)
suspension (either air ride or gc's)
wheels (need help here, dont' know what to get)

I think there is more but i'm running out of brain power.

zex nitrous kit (150 hp shot)
Have you run this shot yet or did you just install it?
I've been wondering how many runs the tranny will take on a 150 shot
I know Jeremy (mindtrip) ran 100shot but that was with a progressive controller and
very very high octane.
What are you using to adjust your timing? That's my main concern with running that shot
nothing to control timing with.

Just wanted to say everyone's car is going to look fantastic this year.
And sounds like there's going to be alot of HP in the chapter....I likey:naughty:

RacerX what's an "AV system"?
